Spinning reels with a rear drag are useful for predatory fishing and are often underestimated by the advantage these spinning reels have. When you are fishing a fish and you want to adjust the skid you will not get near the line at these mills. This allows you to cut much less quickly on the braided line or a thin, nylon line will snap less quickly when there is pressure.
If you use the mill a lot, for example when spinning, the quality of the materials is very important, because you use the mill much more often than during the deadbait fishing. The mill wears much faster and high quality is then necessary.
Some brands that are popular among predators due to the quality are Shimano, Daiwa and Spro.
What is the best predatory fishmill for my fishing?
When choosing the best grinder for your way of fishing, in addition to the points mentioned above, the correct size is also very important. This size must be in balance with the fishing rod you use.
For fishing with a light spinning rod up to 2.10M with a low casting weight on trout and perch, we recommend a size 500 to 1500 approx.
For spinning rods from 2.10 to 2.70M for fishing for pike, a 2500 or 3000 mill fits best.
If you fish with a 2.70M spinning rod with a high casting weight, take a bigger and stronger grinder from size 4000. So that you can throw further and drill the largest pike.
These mills with a size of 4000 or larger are also very suitable for oyster fishing, because you often have to throw a little further and then a large line capacity is necessary. Also, your complete casting weight will also increase which requires a larger and stronger mill. In addition, free-wheeling windmills are also very popular for the dead-shaft fishing.
If you go fishing for zander with a dropshot rod or vertical rod from the boat or belly boat, you will hold the rod a lot and you will need little line capacity. A small, light mill with a size of 1000 to a maximum of 2500 is the best. If you are going to fish for zander from the shore, you will need a grinder from size 2500.
Do you prefer to use a mill with a front drag? No problem, because it does not matter for the functioning of the spinning reel.
